Great Soundboard, Decent Show
I only hesitate to give this five stars because I don't think the show was too special. It was a Recipe show, so it had a ton of energy and melody, but it wasn't the most mind blowing show I've ever seen or heard by them.
The recording itself is pretty much perfect as it is a soundboard. This is also why I don't think the show was especially good. During "Wrecking Ball" they bring in a guest guitarist, but the mix on it is so low you can barely hear it. During the electric solo, Joe is somewhat soloing too and it completely drowns out the electric. On another song, I can't recall which, the banjo is given a lead, but you can't hear that either.
Still, the show sounds fantastic and this is a must have for any Recipe fans. For all yall else, you'll enjoy it to as an introduction, but it isn't the best show they ever did. Now dance your ass off!
